Diving

 

Boracay is world famous for its beautiful white-sand beaches and its water activities, particularly scuba diving. Boracay is full of beautiful coral reefs and abundant with fish life; enjoyable to both new and experienced divers.

There are around 30 dive sites around Boracay accessible by a short boat ride. Most of these dive sites are accessible in high season on the west side of the island, this is typically between October and May. During low season; June to September, the east side of the island opens up and still offers some good dive sites like Laguna de Boracay, where a local Sea Turtle is often sighted.

If you have never tried scuba diving before and you would like to give it a try, why not check out our Introduction diving experience or Open Water certification should you want to become a certified diver.  For new divers, dive sites like Angol Point, Coral Gardens and Laguna de Boracay offer a great introduction to diving with colourful reef life and stunning coral providing home to parrot fishes, damsel fishes, butterfly fishes and turtles. These dive sites are also favourites of experienced divers who like to find macro life, moray eels and other rare creatures in deeper waters.

Already a diver?  If you would like to adventure further, then why not consider the Advance Diving course which will certify you to go deeper and experience exciting wrecks, drift diving, boat diving and more.  For experienced divers, there are dive sites to excite you like Camia 2 boat wreck, Yapak deep wall dives and the Channel Drift. You can see there pelagic fishes such as Barracudas, Dogtooth Tunas, Trevallies. Whitetip and Blacktip Reef Sharks can also be spotted. Crocodile Island is also a favourite repeat dive site for many returning divers, as it offers an easy wall dive in relatively shallow water with a sandy bottom at 20m and a shallow coral garden.  It is great for macro photography as there are many critters to find, such as Pipefishes, Nudibranchs and brilliant, colourful coral.
